The automation package allows for automated testing of Flex Applications. QTP, the software to create and run the automated tests, currently ships only with Flex Data Services. It may technically be possible to use the mx.automation package without QTP, there is no official support for using mx.automation without using QTP.

Hi Dan,

Can you elaborate on where you heard that using mx.automation without FDS is in violation of the Flex license? I would be interested to know, as I had half a mind to play around with something along these lines. . .

After doing some rereading I find that I conflated support and licensing restrictions. My post has been updated to reflex reality.
